Total Lunar Eclipse Tonight
Tonight, beginning at around 10pm, there will be a total lunar eclipse! This will be the last eclipse until 2010, so if you've missed the last 2 this year, now's the time to catch the show.
"One of the cool things is to see what color you get," said John Radzilowicz, Director of the Buhl Planetarium & Observatory, Carnegie-Mellon University. "We expect it to be a bright orange because there haven't been any big volcanic eruptions throwing dust in the air."
Dickinson College's Astronomy Club will be hosting a a Lunar Eclipse Party at the rooftop observatory of Tome, 9:30pm. Several members will be on hand to answer questions, so check it out.
